TEST GONE WRONG: A polish woman may need to brush up on her driving skills after causing a bizare crash during her driver's license exam.

Attempting to pass your driver’s licence exam can be a daunting experience. It's important to know there are certain grounds for failure - and hopefully crashing through a wall and onto a freeway are two of those grounds.

A Polish woman in Czestochowa seemingly confused a Suzuki Swift's brake and accelerator pedals and crashed through the barrier of a test course parking lot.

You can see the bizarre accident unfold from many angles, courtesy of camera mounts, in the video posted on YouTube.

Everything seems to be going well at the start before the car surges forward through a fence and into oncoming traffic. 

The instructor chases the vehicle while shouting at the driver to stop, which she fortunately does after coasting onto the dual carriageway that - thankfully - seems largely deserted at the time of the crash.

Watch the video below: At 0:26 the instructor tries in vain to "catch" the car but ends up falling to the ground, instead.
